While I would shriek like a fanboy if GW
gave us Adeptus Arbites miniatures (evidence
), I'm doubtful. The concept image shown in the first post is incredibly similar to Necromunda Enforcers miniatures
of around 2005-2006. That appearance was also used in the Dark Heresy game for the Adeptus Arbites. That appearance was heavily influenced by the Judge Dredd comics. When GW
revisited the Enforcers for the current range, they deliberately stepped away from the Judge Dredd IP.
The counter to this, and which I hope GW
provides as an explanation, is that the Enforcers are different from the Adeptus Arbites. Their appearance varies from world to world and reflects the customs, traditions, and dictates of their world; and GW
was trying to distinguish between the Enforcers [of Necromunda] and the Adeptus Arbites by giving the Palanite Enforcers a different appearance.
Fingers crossed, but skeptical.
